Hello dr.funk and welcome to G2G!

Click start > click run > type dxdiag and press enter.

What version of DirectX does it say?

Well, I'm definately no computer whiz, and you may have already tried this...
I had/have this problem too... And tried many things.

Have you downloaded the newest version from Microsoft?Look here.

This didn't fix my problem, turns out I need a new graphics card.

Do you?

Sorry, I tried.
